KIEV, April 27. /TASS/. Ukraine in five years will be able to apply for membership in the European Union (EU), Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said at the Ukraine-EU summit on Monday.
"We are ambitious in our plans and actions, and that is why we state that in five years we must implement the Association Agreement [with EU] and reach such conditions that are necessary for applying for EU membership," Poroshenko said.
The Ukrainian president also asked the summit’s participants to acknowledge that Ukraine may become a full-fledged member of EU. "EU membership is a strategic benchmark for our changes. We ask EU to recognize that Ukraine may become an EU member if it meets all necessary criteria," he said.
